Question about Rio Forge Sport Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Battery problem My player was working fine and then all of a sudden, it stopped and everything stiffened up...all the keys. When I took out the battery I saw it had almost melted the player where the battery had been. Of course, it doesn't work. I don't think it's repairable, but I don't know if it's a flaw with the player.

It sounds like the battery was short circuited. You were lucky there was no fire. It's possible there was a flaw with the battery. If this was a rechargeable Lithium Polymer battery then you might remember these were in the news recently because lots of laptops were bursting into flames. Also a friend of mine had one of these in his remote control plane. After he finished flying one day, he left the battery on charge in his BMW from the cigarette lighter while he went shopping and when he returned the fire brigade were putting his car out!

No Electrical power on my 05 V10 Ford Super Duty

The fact that you have disconnected the battery for a month without any form of charghing is risky, as batterries that have been used for a long time and then suddenly disconnected go flat quickly especially in winter or cold months. Have you checked your batterie's voltage to see if it is not flat? Do so if not.The little bit of current left in the batterry will be enough to switch on the CD player's lights as these are merely LED's which only need about 1 to 1.5 volts to work and this is why everything else that uses larger voltages does not work.

Motorola SLVR L7 not vibrating

When you are charging a phone you are not supposed to leave it on vibrate, for whatever reason-it damages the phone. My suggestion take the battery out with the power still on then try and turn it on again. If that doesn't fix it your ******** is shot. You may need to replace your phone. Sorry your having trouble, hope I helped!!

Touchpad won't work on my Gigabeat F40

Mine did the same, touch pad became erratic then stopped working, I could still access everything when linked to a computer. Then all stopped, on power up I got a 00000010 or 0000020 error and nothing.

I popped the end caps off, removed the two small screws holding the back on and found the strap of wires connecting the hard drive was almost completely dissconnected. Pushed the connector back together , reassembled and now all working

TV not working

My 32" Akai did the same thing. It was working fine, I tried everything but nothing worked. Took it to a reapairman and it was the power supply. He said that they were very known to have this problem. I had the system attached to a UPS battery backup and it made not difference.
